General OG Problem Solving Question

by seal4913 » Fri Apr 06, 2012 11:16 am
I'm going through the problems for this sections of the OG. Are they basically low level questions? Starting on page 156 or so I did about 50 questions (timing myself) and I'm getting over 90% correct. The ones I do get wrong are basic of stupid mistakes made by rushing. This seems high to me which makes me believe the questions aren't high or even middle level. Any inputs on my assumption?

They start off easy to moderate and get more difficult as you go.

Hi,

Well its great that you got 90%. But you have done 50 Qns only.It is impromptu to judge. As you progress you will find variety.Do take OG as benchmark. Its not exclusive material, but MUST FOLLOW great material. You should follow other material for PS Qns too, once you finish OG.

Best of Luck!

Thanks for your insight. One last question. I know there are a lot of other factors but if going through all the questions in that section and I'm in the range of 80% of greater correct(timing myself with 1.5 minutes per question doing groups of 10 at a time) would that be more in the 550 range or 650 range?

80% is a great starting point. It's hard to put a number on it, but I would guess that it would put you towards the higher end of that range.

One thing I would highly recommend is to record the questions you got wrong and revisit them in a few days. You might be surprised how often you'll make the same mistake, and it's an easy to figure out things you need to focus on.
